helga powell
Helga Powell is an artist based in beautiful, rural North Herefordshire. Born in London, she grew up in rural West Wales and developed an interest in art and nature from an early age. She gained a BA and MA in Art History at UCL and  worked for several years in London as a picture and academic researcher. Primarily a self taught artist, she took up painting professionally after having children and leaving London, setting up a garden studio in 2010.
       Herefordshire's landscape is rich in texture and gentle on the eye. It is a county filled with many notable gardens and miles of wonderful hedgerows, providing a floral feast through the seasons. The incredible colour combinations, structures and patterns that occur in nature are an endless source of inspiration. Well placed in this setting, she works on commissions from her garden studio.
